Wow......cant believe you have the recipe for sev...it' s a very popular Indian snack with lots of variations....ummmm delightful!THANKS! A lot of work but worth it! p.s Now it is ( ready to eat) available at Indian groceries worldwide.. brand name Haldiram or Bikanerwalla ...sold in packets /pouches like chips etc
New favorite snack! They were a tad bland after cooking but still so good. I topped with a bit of extra salt and fresh cilantro. I used organic Yukon gold potatoes but they really small and there was no way I was going to peel them so I cooked them skin on and a put them in the blender with the pepper, garlic, ginger mix. I was a bit scared because blender mashed potatoes =ewww however I didn't want any of the skins to clog my ricer. It was a total success. After I had a smooth mixture I transferred to a bowl and added the flour. They came out so well and it makes a lot. I love that they are gluten free and vegan. Hubs and I snacked on them like popcorn while watching tv.
I love the ingredients and taste! I just can't have salt or fried food, so I cooked this like you'd cook American noodles, by boiling! This was surprisingly easy to make! I used regular vegetable oil this time, next time I need to find mustard oil for a spicier flavor!
Halved the recipe. The noodles were a little bland after cooking. I dusted them with salt and hot chilli powder and it was much better. Next time I will squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the noodles. It will be amazing.
